N. Korea and America the Bully

While searching the United Nations homepage scouring the internet for first hand resources and documentation regarding the current "Nuclear Situation" in Iran (to be discussed in greater detail in the next post), I came across the following statement by the IAEA:

"Implementation of Safeguards in the Democratic People´s Republic of Korea
Since the end of 2002, when at the request of the Democratic People´s Republic of Korea (DPRK) the Agency´s verification activities were terminated, the Agency has been unable to verify the DPRK´s nuclear activities.
As I have reported before, the Agency stands ready to work with the DPRK - and other concerned parties - towards a comprehensive solution that addresses the security and other needs of the DPRK, on the one hand, and on the other hand, the needs of the international community to ensure that all nuclear activities in the DPRK are exclusively for peaceful purposes."

Then was their findings on Iran:

"Implementation of Safeguards in the Islamic Republic of Iran
The report on the implementation of the NPT Safeguards Agreement in the Islamic Republic of Iran is before you. As you are aware, the Agency over the last three years has been conducting intensive investigations of Iran´s nuclear programme with a view to providing assurances about the peaceful nature of that programme.
During these investigations, the Agency has not seen indications of diversion of nuclear material to nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices."

THIS IS A DIRECT QUOTE FROM THE IAEA REGARDING IRAN, MADE IN MARCH OF THIS YEAR. But that's not the point of this particular blog entry. It is important to note that, while Iran is being cooperative with the IAEA, North Korea is not. Not at all, in fact the inspectors have been thrown out of their country and are not invited to return. So why is America going after Iran (who's not really doing anything wrong, but we'll discuss that in the next post) and not North Korea?
[(Other than to steal China's oil I mean)]

The NEXT funny bit I found was the HOMEPAGE of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. It is so anti-American that one can't help but smile or laugh (depending on your perspective). It calls Americans "imperialist," states bluntly that the U.S.A. has no interest in peace, they are "racist" and "separatist" and lie when they claim to be defenders of freedom. The homepage of N.Korea says ALL OF THIS about America, and yet it's Iran that the U.S. is going after, even though it's painfully obvious that with N.Korea's refusal to cooperate with the IAEA they are obviously the more out of line of the 2 countries, and they use a far more harsh rhetoric than the President of Iran has. Why?

THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SCHOOLYARD BULLY. They went after Iraq because it was weak, they are going after Iran because they feel it is weak (it is, in point of fact, actually NOT. At All.), but they are scared of North Korea, so North Korea doesn't even get mentioned, regardless of the fact that their lack of cooperation with the UN's IAEA is far more dangerous than that of Iran. Just a thought.
The homepage of DPRK linked to through the title is brilliant though. Thought you'd like to know. Back with IRAN, CNN, U.S. PROPAGANDA, and more soon.
